2 years ago in a C205 with 850s tires
The north landing area is in great shape. We landed there with a C170 and a 206 both also on 850s. The area south of the sagebrush that is between the island and the north landing area looked wet/damp and not usable yet. The pole for the windsock looked like it was up but the sock wasn't seen. We didn't have time to hike over from the north landing area. It may just be up in the rocks.
